The English Riviera - England's Seafood Coast

Englands Seafood Coast

Named England’s Seafood Coast for good reason, the English Riviera is home to the UK’s finest seafood and the world-famous Brixham Fish Market, where some of the nation’s best chefs source their seafood.

The Fish Market is the beating heart of England’s Seafood Coast. Each year over £25million worth of fish is landed, making Brixham the biggest fishing port in England by value. The day’s catch is sold in the only live fish auction in the UK, and you can take a unique early morning tour to watch the auction and learn more about the fish that lands on your plate (See our Brixham Fish Market Tour post for more information).

Luckily, for anyone visiting the English Riviera, local restaurants are dedicated to using the best local produce. Many of the finest examples stay right in south Devon’s beautiful bay for you to enjoy.

Look out for...
The waters around Brixham are richly populated with a wide variety of marine life. Over 30 species are regularly landed, including gurnard, Dover sole, lemon sole, lobster, cuttlefish, hake, Brixham crab and renowned Elberry Cove Mussels.

The freshest fish you can get...
The busy fleet of local day fishing boats delivers to the fish market and local restaurants, ensuring fish is no more than 24 hours out of the sea. So you can enjoy your fish at its very best, whether it’s the English classic fish and chips or part of a Michelin-starred tasting menu.

When we think about it, what epitomises Torbay is the view from the sea. We are overwhelmed by
the sheer beauty and grandeur of the beautiful place we live in – and the geological history of what
makes Torbay the stupendous coastal adventure playground that it is. It’s something rarely seen by
the average visitor, of course, but it’s getting up close and personal to the multitude of rocks, coves,
caves and inlets making up the 20 miles and 22 beaches of Torbay’s coastline that brings it all to life.
This is the foundation on which SKT is built: the sheer amazement at what Torbay’s coastline has to
offer, our wish is to share with everyone the excitement we feel every time we go out.

Using luxury sea touring kayaks as a vehicle we are able to glide around the Riviera and access sea
cave, caverns and secret coves. We are a unique, adventure tour operator launching from any beach
within the English Riviera UNESCO Global Geopark. Our tours are for; solo travellers, couples,
families, friends or peers. Meet like-minded people in one of our small group tours or book your own
bespoke experience.

Our tours gained national attention in 2018, our first year of operation and we were awarded as 1 of
the top 20 Water Sports providers in the UK and regionally for Tourism Experience in South Devon.
Tours are guided by local expert Kieran Laureston who is passionate about delivering a truly
memorable experience, he has been taming the sea for beginners for many years and paddling and
sailing these shores since he was a Sea Scout.

There are 5 very distinct tour options for you; from the headlands we are likely to find Cetaceans, to
the Sea Horses and Seals of the backwaters and the Herons and Horses of our estuaries, there is
something for everyone. We will visit local nature reserves and paddle around the islands, stop on
secluded beaches tucked into secret coves, each with its own famous crime scene according to
Agatha Christie. Pick your beach, or let us advise, pack your lunch, or we can catch it as we go. We
can cook anything we catch on hot-stones and finish of with some toasted marshmallows.

Kents Cavern

kents cavern torquay devon

Kents Cavern is one of the most important Stone Age sites in Europe and one of Britain's best showcaves!

On your visit you'll go back to a time when the cave was home to ancient humans, sheltering from extreme weather, making fires, shaping tools and hunting Ice Age animals. As you walk through the extensive labyrinth of caverns, you'll be surrounded by 400 million year old rocks and spectacular stalagmites and stalactites.

Our entertaining cave guides tell the story of a 15 year long Victorian Excavation which uncovered some of Britain's most ancient secrets… All tours around the cave are guided and begin in the Vestibule Chamber, as you enter the cave you'll feel the temperature at a constant 14c. Your tour guide will lead you through the Long Arcade to reveal how the caves were formed 2.5 million years ago and how stalagmite floors formed, sealing in the evidence of Ice Age occupations. Down in the Rockies you'll see stalagmites and stalactites decorating this pretty chamber. Return through Clinnicks Gallery into the Cave of Inscriptions and the Labyrinth to see examples of the earliest tools ever found in Britain, along with bones and teeth of ancient Ice Age animals. Into the Bears Den to experience the famous Kents Cavern blackout, a favourite since the 1930s. Head down the Water Gallery and up to the Great Chamber with its exhibition dedicated to the Stone Age and Victorian excavators... Make sure you check the tour times page to plan your visit to Kents Cavern.

Riding, holidays and workshops at Babeny Farm, Dartmoor

gal11t

Babeny Farm is one of the most respected riding establishments in the area operating for over 30 years, taking rides out onto the open moor.

Riding across Dartmoor is an excellent and easy way to discover the beauty and tranquillity of one of the most natural places in England. We are lucky enough to be able to experience 360 views, cross rivers and explore forest tracks. So whatever the weather a good ride is assured.

If you have never ridden before, why not try now! With our friendly and experienced staff we are sure you will enjoy the experience that Babeny Farm Stables has to offer.

Treks – These are for any ability from complete beginner to the experienced. We try to split rides to ability but all needs will be catered for by the escort if it is a mixed group.

Pub Ride – Whilst any ability can go on a pub ride, as it is approximately 3 hours in the saddle we would advise that some experience is preferable or a hearty confidence and constitution! The ride consists of approximately one and a half hours ride to the pub, approx an hour in the pub and one and a half hours ride home again. The rides leave the yard at 10:30am and returns at around 2.15pm . They are ideal for groups of mixed abilities as all levels of experience can ride together. They are often great fun for a Hen or Stag party. We advise that children should be over 10 years old unless a competent rider.

We look forward to meeting you and escorting you on one of our rides.

Please contact Babeny Stables 01364 631296 for further info.
